Documenting the Influence of Fund for Quality Investments on the Supply of and Demand for Child Care in Philadelphia

Fund for Quality (FFQ) helps providers of high-quality early childhood education in Philadelphia reach more families. In 2015, Reinvestment Fund and PHMC created a survey to be administered for each new seat created through FFQ. This white paper presents preliminary findings related to the increased capacity of FFQ-supported providers, along with select survey responses from parents. These findings provide initial insights into the way FFQ support influences the local supply of high-quality care, the children occupying FFQ-supported seats, parental preferences for care, and the overall demand for child care in the neighborhoods served by FFQ-supported providers.
